File BCDx86 is missing when booting to WinPE



  • Hello and Happy New Year to everyone.
    I would like to ask a question regarding WinPE environment build on Linux machine ( CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 ).
    After merging the tftpboot directory with structure produced by ClonedeployPE Builder, when booting I got this message.

    Not sure but it probably tries to insert escape symbol ( \ ) in front of path of BCDx86 files. All file and directory permissions are set to apache user and group. Please help.

    Thank you.



  • Grab this file and place it in your tftpboot directory
    http://files.clonedeploy.org/remap

    Modify /etc/default/tftpd-hpa
    Add [code]-m /tftpboot/remap[/code] to the tftp options

    Restart the tftp service



  • Thank you for you prompt answer.
    Looks like this directory tftpd-hpa is missing from my distro ( Centos 7 )

    [root@CloneDeploy etc]# pwd
    /etc
    [root@CloneDeploy etc]#
    [root@CloneDeploy etc]# ls -al default/
    total 16
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 16 12:15 .
    drwxr-xr-x 69 root root 4096 Jan 3 04:10 ..
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1756 Oct 30 07:53 nss
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 119 Oct 30 14:54 useradd
    [root@CloneDeploy etc]#

    I'll try to adapt to this distro and will update

    Thank you.



  • That's correct it would be in the service I believe.
    /usr/lib/systemd/system/tftp.service



  • Now the first line disappeared and the error message looks that:



  • I have increased the verbosity of tftpd and found this in log. Please see attached files.



  • Did you use the latest version of WinPE builder? 1.2.1?

    I'm using 1.2.0 ( provided in tutorial link [url=http://clonedeploy.org/docs/using-the-winpe-imaging-environment/]Building the WinPE Imaging Environment [/url] ) 🙂 🙂 Thought the is the final version. Here is the link:

    [url=https://sourceforge.net/projects/clonedeploy/files/CloneDeployPE%20Builder/CloneDeployPE%20Builder-1.2.0.zip/download]CloneDeployPE Builder([/url]

    This may be the problem 🙂 I'll try with 1.2.1 version.

    Thank you very much.



  • Everything is working with version 1.2.1

    Again thank you for help and great software.
